Noopur is a Rancho Bernardo native who made her way back to San Diego after college and graduate school. She and her fiancé live in Hillcrest where they love their weekend visits to Balboa Park and the Zoo. She has been a speech-language pathologist for 6 years and has consulted at CMP since 2019. Her focus within the field is to help children become successful communicators through play, conversation, and parent and teacher coaching. She works with children and families to build receptive, expressive, and social language skills to help them feel confident at home, school, and in their community. At CMP, she observes classrooms to provide speech and language development strategies to teachers and she does child-specific observations by teacher and/or parent request. Noopur aims to provide therapeutic strategies to teachers and families to help support skill development and to recommend further evaluation when necessary. Preschool is a critical age for speech and language skill development! Catching delays and providing early intervention and support can be crucial in fostering successful transitions to Kindergarten, building social relationships with peers, and reducing frustration and behaviors at home and at school. She is a special resource on all things speech and language related for CMP teachers and parents!
“Last year, I had a child receiving speech services. I had a couple opportunities throughout the year to speak with the Speech Pathologist about the child’s progress. It was really helpful to know exactly what my student was working on in speech, and hearing how the SLT phrased things so I could use the same words/language here at school. She gave me lots of tips and strategies to encourage proper sound formation and build vocabulary. For example, she told me to remind the student to use his “big mouth” when speaking so he wouldn’t mumble, and the words & sounds became much more clear. Consistency between speech, school, and home was really beneficial for this child.”
“I am so happy that we have a Speech and Language Pathologist on staff at CMP. The SLP was able to provide resources that enable me to help further my students speech growth and communication skills as well as act as a bridge between myself and parents. Our SLP was able to refer one of my students for speech and she has shown tremendous growth since being in speech.”
“As early childhood educators, we recognize when there may be a need for a speech evaluation to help a child with their language skills. Having access to a speech language pathologist at CMP has made the bridge between school and speech much easier. One of my children was having a difficult time pronouncing certain letters. When the Speech Language Pathologist observed her, she was able to make an evaluation that the child’s parents used to start their child in a speech program. That child started to become more confident in their language skills and as their teacher, I could better understand how to help them work on those skills in the classroom.”
